Subject: The Kalua Islanders with Maurice and Esme Ash
Made in the United Kingdom, it is from the Felix Mendelssohn era, but NOT the band, It is the Kalua Islanders with Maurice and Esme Ash.

They were asked to add a Hawaiian guitar to the proposed film, so they advertised in the "Southend Gazette" and Ronnie Saunders (Now deceased) replied.
The song is Au-we Wahine (written by Paul Page) and the second part is an instrumental version of South Sea Lullabies.

Filmed February 24th 1947..

Maurice emigrated to Australia and apparently lived quite near to Sid downs (Brisbane)

Pretty standard soundie here with a hawaiian guitar artist, a slide guitarist, and a somewhat attractive soloist.. Not too bad, somewhat scandalous finish though lol

This is fairly subdued for a soundie. It features a singer with a guitar singing a hula song while a woman in a grass skirt dances the hula and a steel guitar player provides backup. ThatÂs it, really. Play this at your next tiki party.
